    passenger door latch does not open from inside have to roll down window to open door from handle outside. Sometimes electronic window will not roll down with passenger control and driver side has to do it.
    It is not fixed.

    passenger front door lock does not work manually or remotely.
    door cannot be locked.
    after research it's the door latch assembly which is a mechanical and electrical device that locks the door.
    a torx 20 and torx 25 screw driver along with a couple flat head screw drivers will help you replace it with a new one ($150) within the hour.

    key no longer operates door locks, tho' it turns, so the lock cylinder is not frozen

    driver side door will not open, had to take door panel off inside and probably cut the door panel to get to the striker for the door lock and chisel off

    Drivers door operates separately from other doors, electronic key fob will not unlock drivers door, other doors still working. Seemed to begin during
    Ultra cold weather. Drivers door will lock but not unlock electrically.

    Sometimes only the driver's side unlocks with the remote, other times maybe two other doors open along with the driver's side door but rarely if ever does the remote unlock all four doors. Inside the vehicle when pressing the central locking system all door latches tend to stay in the downward position. It is a case of hit or miss as to when and which door will unlock from inside or outside the vehicle.
